Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Pippa had a Party………

……..and 150 people came!

It was just what the doctor ordered!

Classmates, cousins, friends of Pippa’s, friends of James’, friends of Patrick’s and family friends filled the bowling alley. Ages ranged from 2 to 78 and both ends of the spectrum had a go at bowling!! That competitve edge kicks in a lot more in your 70s though!!

The bowling balls were rolling, air hockey was intense (at Olympic standard) and one of the most beautiful parts of the night were the secret deals being made between all the “big boys” to ensure that Pippa finished up the night with the most enormous pink teddy in her possession! – Thanks Guys!!! 🙂

The party (suggested but not planned by me, thank you; we just supplied the names) was a great talking point and distraction between us during our first few days of treatment and something incredibly exciting to look forward to when we came home. Pippa’s contribution to the party was to help me make a Ferrero Rocher Tower which she very carefully held in the car on the way there.

To have such an awesome party was the best thing to do on this first weekend back. She is still utterly thrilled about it and had so much fun. Thank You to everyone.

PS – apologies if I missed anyone on the invite list x
